Matt Pond

JAY HORTON
9 pm., Monday September 02 | $12.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[INDEPENDENT ROCK] Newly shorn of the P.A. that’s long followed his name, despite moving from Philly to New York a decade ago, and the pretense of a band—really, it’s little more than a revolving lineup of sidemen—Matt Pond appears to be at last embracing his inner solo artist. And judging from altogether cheerful new release The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hand, his first under the streamlined imprimatur and 10th proper, the single life agrees with him. While no one would confuse the just-this-side-of-anthemic guitar pop spun by his touring quartet with troubadour ditties, the newfound positivity shining through the sun-kissed melodies speaks to baggage blissfully left behind.
